JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Maybe I'm not cut out for the work I want to do.

Doubt is no enemy of mine -- doubt is a helpful friend. Doubt helps me where it doesn't help others, because they feel bad about doubt. I don't feel bad about doubting something I did or something I have -- if I never question it, it could be useless or worthless and I would never know it.

So the doubtful thinking leads me to the possibility that I'm not really made to be what I think I want to be, a freelance web person.

Maybe my doubt is correct. Perhaps I really don't have the ability to sell myself, to seek out new jobs regularly, etc.

Now, the second one's not a huge huge issue -- people do occasionally find contracts longer than a week, I hear -- but I'm starting to think my doubt is dead on about me not being able to sell myself.

I don't even like the phrase.

Anyway, I've been looking through Ask The Head Hunter and I'm starting to think maybe I should just ask someone else to sell me instead. Maybe I should ask someone I know who doesn't seem terribly unable to sell things to people.

I used to be pretty good at it, I thought. But I've spent a long time away from trying to convince people of things, and maybe I just kind of lost the knack.

So, I'm considering asking someone else to act as a headhunter for me.
